to Puerto Rico! ... Two-Player Format
Puerto Rico's golden age returns. Through you and this
card game sequel! Players travel now to the capital city of this
beautiful island. Who will build the most important buildings?
Players build palaces, poor houses, silver smelters, gold mines,
and many others - each with its own special features. The cleverest
player will build best and win!
As with the boardgame, players choose roles which can help
all players, but the choosing player gets a special privilege
with the role chosen. Players build buildings, produce and sell
goods, and so on. The game is based on Puerto Rico, but
is different enough to give players new challenges and opportunities
for fun and enjoyment.

will be 2-, not 4-player, making it imperative that players bring
a copy of the game if they wish to play. If games are in short
supply, and they almost certainly will be, priority will be given
to those with games first.
There will be four swiss rounds starting at 11 AM with players
matched by their records after Round 1. After four rounds, those
with at least three wins will qualify and continue to Single
We will be using the optional rule wherein the first player
starts with five cards and the second player starts with six
cards. Both players will then discard down to four cards.
